Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been part of the planning and implementation leadership team at Genesee Health System since since formally initiating our efforts to become an FQHC. I led a year-long Health Center Planning Grant funded by HRSA related to these efforts. I have worked with GHS since 2009, and with systems-level change efforts in vulnerable communities for 15 years. I have been a guest presenter on numerous national webinars on a variety of FQHC-related topics.
